Today, on the 17th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, we remember the members of the Regis community, extended members of the Regis family, and all those who lost their lives in the attacks. In particular, we remember the Noble Hearts taken from us that day:
Matthew G. Leonard '80
Gregory J. Trost '93
Paul J. Battaglia '96
We pray today not only for all lives lost 17 years ago, but also for their families and loved ones, and for peace.
Pictured above is a piece of steel from the Word Trade Center formally erected in the Regis Quadrangle on the 10th anniversary of the terror attacks. The steel design was an Eagle Scout Project of Nicholas Vernice '14. A plaque describing the installation reads: "This steel was originally part of the World Trade Center. The design represents not only the void of the towers in the skyline and of the fallen in our hearts, but of the hope that replaces them. Dedicated to those who have fallen, by those who will never forget."
The Regis September 11 monument stands at the southeast corner of the Regis Quadrangle and serves as a reminder of the lives lost on September 11, 2001.
